Robert Noble was baptised in Fersfield, Norfolk in 1831 and died in Chingford, Essex in 1912. His parents were Daniel Noble and Charlotte Catling. He married Eliza Philpot who was also from Norfolk, but they were to spend their married life down in Essex. Robert was a gardener and domestic servant. He is believed to have owned the Green Man Public House in North Chingford.
Robert Noble and Eliza Philpot had the following child:
George Perrey was born on April 2, 1862 in Chingford, Essex, England. He was the son of George Perrey and Elizabeth Ann Wilson. George died on Saturday, December 2, 1917. (See George Perrey for the continuation of this line.)
Eliza Perrey is remembered by her granddaughter, Grace Setford (nee Perrey) for her big tabby cat which used to hang around her neck when she would go for a walk. She was a nice lady and would look after her grandchildren when their mother had to visit the dentist. Grace Setford has memories of sitting by the fire with the kettle whistling. The cemetery was at the back of Grandma Perrey's house, separated by a lane. A family of acrobats from the circus lived next door and they used to practice in the lane behind the house. Passing through the cemetery, you would reach fields on the other side and Grace has memories of picnics held in these fields.
